I like the school because it is small. Therefore, everybody knows everybody-students and staff. I would like to see my school grow in regards to education and extra curricular activities. Rapides could add more sports and clubs and have more involvement in activities that benefit good students.

My overall experience at Rapides High School was decent. I've been able to develop good relationships and become the person I am today. However, some things I'd like to see changed would be the available resources we have as a small school. I feel like there should be more available opportunities for other students in the future.
I love our softball organization. We hace awesome coaches and teachers. Some teachers are a little rough around the edges but theyre still great.
